It started off as a brainstorming session in which the editorial staff were sitting around ruminating about shopping locally over a glass of wine (or four). We started coming up with our favourites here in New West, stores that are hidden treasures and gems of awesomeness and started feeling pretty good about not having to leave the city to find a gift for everyone on your list. That conversation has evolved into a special series we’re calling Hyack the Holidays that we will be kicking off today. We invite Tenth readers to chime in with your favourites and suggestions.
Sometimes it’s easy to get drawn into shopping meccas and big box stores with their promises of constant stock levels, super sales and staff to greet you at the door. We believe that a city is what you make of it, and we’re hoping we can help make local business better by presenting alternatives that you don’t even need to leave home to find.
Happy Holidays from all of us here at Tenth to the Fraser.
